Need a good reason to get off the couch this weekend? How about curing cancer? Yeah, we knew you couldn’t say no to that.

The Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure, the flagship event of the massive breast cancer awareness organization, hosts their annual 5K this Sunday at Seattle Center. Registration is at Fisher Pavilion. There are separate runs and walks, both women-only and co-ed, and a special kids’ race.

Registration is just $30 if done online before Friday (and you’ll score a free subscription to Self or GQ), and $40 on race day. The event has been happening since 1983 and raised $1.5 million last year alone.

Still can’t muster up a few miles of jogging for a good cause? Gosh, you’re lazy. You can still show support with the “Sleep in for the Cure” option for $35. You get a t-shirt, some beauty sleep, and fewer shin splints. And yes, you can still say that you spent Sunday doing good deeds.
